Why Should Injection Moulders Diversify into 3D Printing?


The world of injection moulding is changing fast. Long lead times for tools to be designed and manufactured put many businesses at a disadvantage to low cost overseas producers.

How can your injection moulding business gain a critical market advantage in this fast changing world? Introducing HP Multi-Jet Fusion 3D printing – the perfect complement to your traditional methods of manufacturing plastic components and sub-assemblies.

Why should you consider HP MJF as part of your manufacturing mix?

  • Speed. No waiting for mould tools to be manufactured to produce high value, functioning prototypes and production runs.
  • With HP MJF, you can produce parts overnight – either one offs, a myriad of different design iterations of the same part, or a production run of the same component or a mix of parts.
  • Changes. You can change design & iterate as many times as you like with HP MJF – just change, modify & print. Hold your latest functioning part next day.
  • Lower volume production runs not economical with traditional mould tools? With HP, incorporating low production runs is not only economical, it is profitable.
  • Simplicity. From concept to component, the HP MJF process is quick to learn, intuitive in practice and delivers tangible results from the first time you print.
  • Manoeuvrability; HP 3D MJF printing enables your injection moulding company to react to quotations faster & produce samples and prototypes weeks before traditional injection moulders can respond.
  • With HP MJF 3D printing, you can create plastic components that are impossible to manufacture with a mould tool.
  • Matsuura UK 3D printing expertise and service & applications support, from our bespoke purpose built Additive Manufacturing Facility in Leicestershire.

3D printing will never take the place of high volume plastic parts manufacturing, but it can add a profitable dimension to your injection mould business that gives you a dynamic market advantage, and fresh value added appeal to your customers.

If you are planning to take your injection moulding business to a new level & seize the coming export opportunities for global Britain, Matsuura are ready to support your aspirations, growth and future profitability – with HP MJF 3D printing.
